No Dr. Who

Weh. I was going to settle in and watch the second half of the Dr. Who two-parter that started last week, and write something about it, but apparently they're having a Stargate SG-1 marathon. So instead I'm going to watch the Tim Kring cut of the Heroes pilot, off the minty-fresh Heroes DVD set I bought yesterday.

NBC=Kinda Dumb

In a debatably really dumb move, NBC has decided to stop selling its shows on iTunes. Apparently $1.99 a pop wasn't enough for them. Plus they claim to have concerns about piracy, yadda yadda yadda.

Seems to me having your shows up at iTunes for $1.99 is more likely to hedge against piracy than to cause it. Rumor has it they wanted an amount that would have driven the price up to $4.99/episode. Which is outrageous when you can get an entire season on DVD for $19.99 in some cases.

I hope they see their dumbness and change their minds, but we shall see. In the meantime, anything from NBC or SciFi won't be available for purchase anymore.
